Curbishley 'No' To Owls

Curbishley 'No' To Owls

Former Charlton Athletic boss Alan Curbishley has ruled himself out of the vacant manager's hot seat at Hillsborough according to reports in today's papers.

Curbishley revealed in The Times that he wants to return to manage in the Premiership when the time is right - and has revealed he turned down approaches from the Owls, Leeds United and West Bromich Albion in the last few weeks.

Wednesday have been looking for a new boss since the shock sacking of former boss Paul Sturrock last Thursday - with chairman Dave Allen revealing he has a shortlist 'as long as his arm'.

But it now looks as though Allen will have to cross Curbishley off his wish-list, with attentions turning towards former West brom and Nottingham Forest boss Gary Megson and former England and Aston Villa boss Graham Taylor.

Megson - whose father used to play in the famous blue and white stripes and is a Wednesday fan - is hot favourite for the job after being spotted at Hillsborough in recent weeks sitting in the director's box.

Wednesday are also still contemplating a second move for highly-rated Burnley boss Steve Cotterill after having an approach turned down last week while Scunthorpe boss Brian Laws and former Doncaster Rovers boss Dave Penney have also been linked with the job.
